Lenz has partnered with SouthCoast Health, a Savannah-based healthcare provider with 120 healthcare professionals encompassing more than 20 specialties and services, for more than five years. As the COVID-19 crisis swept across the United States, SouthCoast Health recognized it was a crucial time to solidify their telemedicine offerings to ensure community members could safely access the medical care they needed. The practice reached to Lenz for help in developing messaging, promotional assets, and marketing strategy for pushing out this service offering.

Our plan included a comprehensive suite of digital assets that would get the word out to existing and new patients.

Lenz Takes on the Windy City alongside Preferred Podiatry Group

Lenz had the honor of partnering with Preferred Podiatry Group (PPG) to organize their 2019 PPG Healthcare Summit, assisting the practice with event planning, communications, and execution. The 2019 Summit took place June 21-22, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois and hosted more than 100 affiliated physicians and industry leaders from across the country.

Georgia Urology’s Website Redesign and Video Creation 

As the stewards of Georgia Urology’s brand, Lenz endeavored to refresh some of the practice’s key assets, including their WSB-TV commercial, recruitment tools. 

With the generous help of many Georgia Urology physicians, we updated their television spot–featuring their incredible team, adding a really personal touch from the providers:

Then, after hundreds of hours of work, the team updated the Georgia Urology website: the practice’s digital front door. Along with a newer, cleaner look, the site implemented user-friendly navigation. The optimized design and structure yielded results: increasing online appointment requests by 23% in its first few months live.

Georgia Urology is the largest urology practice in the southeast, and they’re always growing and looking for new, talented providers. To aid in their pursuit of dedicated team members, the Lenz team–with CFF Media–created a powerful recruiting tool to inspire the next generation of Georgia Urology team members.

For four years, Lenz has worked with the phenomenal Atlanta Science Festival (ASF) team.

Elevating a Practice Brand through Video

What steps does it take to showcase a brand through video? Lenz knows how, and we were thrilled to create such a video for SouthCoast Health, a healthcare organizations with over 120 healthcare professionals encompassing more than 20 specialties and services.

To start, Lenz developed a script and storyboard for the video before procuring the vendor for the video. We also served as the intermediary between the client and the production team for the film schedule, production, set, and talent needs. Following, we helped to oversee the rounds of edits and feedback on the rough cuts of the footage drafted.

In 2019, they approached Lenz and asked for our expert team to study some of their biggest affiliated companies’ blog traffic in order to implement a successful SEO strategy that would allow their website content to flourish.

Lenz Extends Marketing and Social Media Reach for Cumberland Caverns Live

Photo of the venue at Cumberland Caverns Live

Cumberland Caverns Live, a recent addition to the Southeast music scene, tapped Lenz to develop its marketing and social media brand, following its inaugural season in 2018. Artists like the Allman Betts Band, John Stuckley Trio, Deer Tick, and Devotchka have played memorable shows 333 feet below ground. Those performances were inside the visually striking and sonically rich World Famous Volcano Room at Cumberland Caverns in McMinnville, Tennessee. 

To help raise CCL’s visibility and grow its audience for 2019, Lenz deployed an efficient marketing strategy including content creation, paid social, and targeted radio, digital, and print advertising. Lenz created new visual assets leveraging CCL’s striking performance imagery and band photography. Our team upgraded CCL’s social media channels, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, with consistent content cadence and high quality visual imagery. We also forged advertising partnerships with music and specialty publications in nearby markets like Nashville and Chattanooga such as Lightning 100 and Nashville Scene. 

2019’s season was Cumberland Caverns Live’s best yet. While the live entertainment industry regroups from COVID-19 this year, we are working to make 2021 even better for our client.

Doubling Campaign Numbers with Emory 

2019 marked the third year of our successful integrated marketing campaign for Emory Law’s Juris Master degree. The campaign leveraged traditional media (radio, print, PR), with targeted digital tools such as Google Ads, remarketing, and Facebook with customized messaging according to geography and concentration. 

And in 2019, our partners within the law school charged Lenz with taking the campaign to the next level: they asked us to generate 50% more inquiries from prospective students compared to the previous year. To do this, Lenz amplified its digital strategy and took the campaign national: targeting geographies like Washington D.C., Austin, TX, Orlando, FL, Raleigh-Durham, NC, Virginia, and beyond. Coupled with strategic print, radio, and streaming campaigns, the campaign delivered: by the end, it had yielded almost 60% more inquiries than the previous year–more than 500 conversions in fewer than twenty weeks. 

Plus, the campaign got a face-lift, embracing all new images and graphics, now unique to the degree.

Helping Marietta Plastic Surgery expand its reach via Pinterest

Lenz helped Marietta Plastic Surgery extend their reach to Pinterest this year. In addition to being a successful marketing tool, Pinterest also functions as a search platform, which helps prospective patients find relevant resources and updates in real-time. Marietta Plastic Surgery’s Pinterest is already off to a strong start with a curated mix of promotional practice materials and relatable lifestyle content boards. To see examples of those, click here for the Marietta Plastic Surgery “Meet Our Doctors board and the quotes board

In 2015, Danielle and Dr. William Webb of SouthCoast Health lost their son, William, to cancer. After suffering this tragedy, the Webbs created the nonprofit Warriors 4 William Foundation to help others facing similar challenges. Its annual Warriors 4 William 5K raises money for childhood cancer research, and, this year, the Lenz media relations team was ecstatic to jump in and help raise awareness. 

In 2019, Lenz helped garner media attention from Savannah Morning News, the city’s major daily newspaper, and WTOC, the local CBS affiliate, for the race. You can read the Savannah Morning News article here, and you can read the WTOC article here

Georgia Urology’s WSB-TV campaign

In 2018, Lenz developed and managed a robust TV ad campaign for Georgia Urology on WSB-TV. Three spots were created that focused on two of the practice’s important service lines—kidney stones and prostate cancer—and one spot was devoted to awareness building for the practice’s brand. The spots aired throughout the summer and fall of 2018 to great reception!

Tall Timbers environmental project

The Economic Impact of the Red Hills Region’s Quail Hunting Lands of North Florida and Southwest Georgia is a publication put out by the Tall Timbers organization that is based on research they do to track the conservation efforts they support. It is used to show the community and other interested parties how important the region’s environmental conservation efforts are to the local economy in very real terms. Lenz’s Creative Director Ben Barnes loves producing incredible design work for this project every three years because it’s an opportunity to be creative and support a good cause.

2018 Atlanta Science Festival

During the 2018 Atlanta Science Festival, Lenz had the pleasure of tackling exciting new projects in addition to improving the same initiatives from years prior. One of the top moments from 2018 was bringing ALEX (Atlanta’s Lead Explorer) to life. Not only did we create a physical costume that ASF could use during events of the conference, we also designed a mini version for some incredible social engagement. ALEX had much time in the spotlight, but here are some of our favorite photos:

Lenz also built a beautiful new website to help promote this incredible festival and its efforts to connect Atlanta’s science community. Check out this before and after:

Our 2018 efforts really made a difference in the overall attendance, enjoyment, and quality of the festival. For example, last year 53,000 people attended, there were 120 events over 70 venues, and the festival gathered over 122 media hits that reached more than 37 million views.

Finally, our team managed to secure many exciting PR hits for this client.

Rebranding Avant Gynecology, FKA McDaniel & Durrett, P.C.

Emory Law’s JM Campaign

2018 saw the continuation of a successful integrated marketing campaign for Emory Law’s Juris Master degree. The campaign (now beginning its third year) leverages traditional media (radio, print, PR), targeted digital messaging, creative, and strategies across more than ten cities in the southeast including Charlotte, Nashville, Jacksonville, and Atlanta using tools such as geo-fencing, Google Ads, pre-roll, and remarketing. During the fall of 2018, we captured new video featuring student testimonials and created a suite of accompanying digital assets to harmonize with the new videos.

Here’s one example:

Lenz Helps Amplify Decatur Raise $40,000 to Fight Poverty

Lenz presented the 2018 Amplify Decatur Concert Series, helping raise $40,000 for its beneficiary Decatur Cooperative Ministry (DCM), a Decatur-based, nonprofit organization that works to prevent and alleviate poverty and homelessness in Decatur and DeKalb County. This $40,000 gift equals the most an Amplify Concert Series has generated to date; Amplify Decatur has raised and donated more than $190,000 to DCM since 2011.

On April 14, thousands gathered on the Downtown Decatur Square for the Amplify Decatur Music Festival, the centerpiece of the concert series. The festival featured performances by an all-star Americana line-up, including The Lone Bellow, The Jayhawks, Amanda Shires, and Parker Millsap. Atlanta-based folk duo Dwayne Shivers also performed.

Lenz’s own Accounts and Operations Director, Christine Mahin, served as festival director for the second consecutive year. Lenz is extremely proud to have worked alongside the Amplify My Community team to make this event as successful as it was.

SouthCoast Health’s Urgent Care

With more than 120 healthcare professionals encompassing more than 20 specialties and services, we were excited to help SouthCoast Health promote its latest addition to its extensive line of services: Urgent Care. Lenz branded the service and crafted several social media assets, such as Facebook campaigns, boosted ads, and weekly social posts, to promote the line.

We were particularly proud of a gif that both the social media department and the creative team crafted together:

Collaboration between local bloggers and Marietta Plastic Surgery

In today’s age of online “influencers” and brands, plastic surgery groups have seen great success in collaborating with micro-influencers. Micro-influencers are local social media accounts with large followings and audiences that trust their opinion.

That’s why Lenz was proud to connect Marietta Plastic Surgery with Peaches in a Pod, a best-friend micro-influencers duo based in Marietta, Georgia. See some of the social posts and blogs we helped Peaches in a Pod create to promote the incredible services Marietta Plastic Surgery provides.

Mike Killeen, Lenz’s VP of Marketing, has returned to teach a healthcare marketing course at Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health for a second year.

Mike’s course covers a wide array of marketing topics, including branding, advertising, and the digital revolution, as well as how these disciplines relate to the increasingly consumer-oriented world of healthcare.

The course is offered to Rollins’ students who have chosen the management track in their pursuit of a masters degree in public health. There are 50 students in the class.

“It’s extremely fulfilling to spend time each week with the class, discussing a topic that I find to be so interesting and dynamic,” Mike said. “I learn so much from the students.”

Lenz recently added to its growing list of media properties with the launch of The Weekly Check-Up healthcare radio show in the Tampa-St. Petersburg market.

In Tampa, The Weekly Check-Up is presented by Florida Cancer Specialists, hosted by JoJo Patrella, and airs Saturday mornings on WHPT 102.5 FM.
